farmers weekly has teamed up with Michelin Agricultural Tyres

to offer a brand new Mitsubishi Shogun Sport worth £18,995 as

the prize in our autumn competition. Just read the text, answer

the single question published each week and fill in the coupon.

Who knows, it could be you driving a new 4×4 this winter…

THE Michelin Agribib is a standard profile tubeless radial tyre designed for all-round use on medium- to high-horsepower tractors.

The Agribib has a wide, flat tread area for improved grip and traction. This large footprint, combined with an optimised tread pattern with deep parallel lugs, gives 5% more grip than comparable tyres and retains its grip throughout the life of the tyre.

This increased ground contact patch also spreads the load over a larger area, which reduces compaction and therefore soil damage. A raised step between the lugs produces a self-cleaning action, which ensures continuous traction in wet, sticky conditions.

The flexible radical casing of the Agribib acts like a suspension, protecting driver and tractor on rough ground, increasing productivity and reducing machine damage. Reinforced shoulders, flat crown area, and improved rubber compounds reduce wear and damage both on and off road, which all adds up to a tyre that offers the farmer excellent value for money.

What percentage increase in grip does the Michelin Agribib give compared to comparable tyres?
